This peak is not in the book.
Diamond Ridge Peak is the highest point on Diamond Ridge. It sits above Deep Lake on Diamond Ridge. Diamond Ridge runs from Peak 8552 northeast to a peak identified by the USGS as Diamond Rock. Diamond ridge is located northeast of upper Payette Lake on the east side of the paved Warren Wagon Road which is leaves McCall on the west side of Payette Lake. The best access at this point in time is to follow the Warren Wagon Road north for 21.1 miles and then turn east (right) onto FS-431 and follow this descent dirt road to its end. A fair trail leaves the east end of the parking lot and climbs roughly 750 feet in one mile to the base of the ridge at Deep Lake but be forewarned that this area was heavily burned and in places crosscountry travel will involve crossing acres of downed trees.

This peak can be climbed from Deep Lake. I climbed this peak as part of a traverse of the ridge with John Platt in 2015. For additional details, see my Diamond Ridge Traverse page and John’s trip report.
